Learning to Knit and Purl

Craft category: needle knitting
Class type: phone
Instructor: Annette
Class dates: April 2, and 9, 2016
Time: 2 p.m. eastern
Sign up deadline: March 26, 2016
Skill level: Beginner
Supplies Needed:
• Knitting needles size 10. (Note, any size between 8 and 11 can work if that is what you have available.) Straight or circular is up to you.
• Worsted weight yarn or thicker. The yarn should not have a halo
(Fuzziness) to it. (NOTE: If you utilize any functional vision, you will want a light colored yarn, however, even if you have vision, I encourage you to participate in the class and try not to use your vision, but this is a personal choice and I will respect whatever you elect to do.)
• Scissors.
• Where to get supplies: any craft store or yarn shop.

Description: This class will be divided into two parts, one each Saturday.
Part 1: Beginning Knitting – You will learn
• How to make a slip knot
• The “knit” cast on.
• The knit stitch
• Discussion of the basic knit bind off

Part 2: Beginning Purling – You will learn
• A quick verbal review of the knit stitch
• Basic knit bind off.
• Purl stitch
So if you are a new knitter who has never held knitting needles in your hands, or you want to get back into knitting, you will want to sign up for Part 1. It is recommended that these same students also sign up for Part 2 to benefit from the quick verbal review of the knit stitch, and instruction on how to bind off. You can then hang up if you feel that learning to purl would be over whelming at this point.

If you already know how to do at least 1 type of cast on, know how to knit, and are ready to learn the purl stitch, then you should sign up for this class. The review of the knit stitch and the instruction of the basic bind off will ensure that we are all using the same terminology.
